The president told of the big sis

very systematic and satisfactory
manner this year. Helen Peters,
head of the big sister committee, \s
now gathering in written, reports
from the big sister captains which
will show how each little sister has
been cared for. This work will con

The foreign scholar who is brought
here each year by the W’oman's
league is helped along bv such acti- >
vities as the Christmas College ball
in Portland during the holidays and
the Dime Crawl given once each
term on the campus. Toddy Swaf
ford is in charge of the foreign
scholar fund.
The regular league teas have con
tinued throughout winter term.
There was also a formal tea honor
ing Hazel Prillsnuln, dean of women.
“Attendance at the teas has been
larger this year than ever before, 1
believe,” Edith Dodge said. The
league’s annual mass meeting was
held February 28 with Katherine
Rogers Adams, dean of women at
Mills college, as the featured
speaker. Dean Adams is a well
known figure in A. A. P. W. work.

Merger Will Work,
Believes Dean of
Education School
Pointing out tluit tho merger of
tlio boards of regents in Oregon’s
higher schools, effectoil at the just

tend to develop, without interfer

particular field of each school, Dean
11. T). Sheldon, when asked what he
thought of the plan, expressed the
belief that “it will probably Work
out all right.”
“The chance is, in the average
individual board of regents plan,
that each one goes its own way and
absorbs as much as it can of the
other institution's field. The new
plan should confine each school to
its own proper field.
“It is greatly, to the interest of
the state that each type of institu
tion should do its particular work.
Of course it depends on its being
worked out in a large and states
manlike way, but I think there is
good reason to think it will be,”
concluded the dean.

Experience First-hand
Mrs. Heck has many carefully
founded ideas on the almost entire
ly new subject of “floating univer
sities,” and these,ideas are backed
by personal contact with former
student tours, gained while she was
in the Orient.’ When asked what
types of students should be included
in the tours, she answered without
hesitut ion:
“Upperclassmen only — serious
minded types, who will subordinate
pleasure-seeking to the main pur
pose of tho trip, education. They
must consider that they are getting
far more than they are giving up.
It would probably be better to in
clude men students only, because
mixing sexes inevitably brings
social’interests to detract from tho
educational program. The major in
terest of the students makes no dif
ference, but they surely must have
mature minds, capable of applying
themselves whole-heartedly to tho
purpose of the tour.”
